Here Are the 8 "Big No-Nos" in Hair Care
Not to brag, but we’ve got healthy hair down to a science. We ALREADY did the hard work OF formulating botanical products so all you have to do is break a couple of extra-harmful habits. Here are all your hair mistakes, decoded...
#1: NOT WASHING YOUR HAIR
Wash your hair a minimum of two to three times a week, every day if you’re using hairstyling products. This eliminates residue from the hair and scalp and keeps them healthy. If you’re worried about drying your hair out, use a gentle shampoo that will provide an extra boost of hydration and shine. Try: PHYTONEUTRE CLARIFYING SHAMPOO
#2: USING DRY SHAMPOO TOO OFTEN
If you’re not washing your hair regularly, we can assume you’re making this mistake too. Most women are using dry shampoo far too often, which disturbs the balance of natural oils on your hair. Most dry shampoos also contain alcohol and this dehydrates the scalp. To amend dry, dehydrated and potentially very itchy scalp, reach for a treatment oil like PHYTOPOLLÉINE BOTANICAL SCALP TREATMENT to cleanse, detox and rehydrate your scalp.
#3: NOT USING A HEAT PROTECTANT
Raise your hand if you use at least one heat styling tool a day. Raise your hand again if you’re one of those who don’t use a heat protectant. Using hot tools without a heat protectant is a bad combination, it can weaken your hair and cause breakage. Protect your hair, use a thermal spray like PHYTOKÉRATINE REPAIRING THERMAL PROTECTANT SPRAY. This unique botanical formula is heat activated and maintains optimal moisture levels during heat styling.
#4: CUTTING FATS FROM YOUR DIET
We tend to cut fats out from our diet, but consuming the right fats is essential for hair growth. If you don’t feel like you’re getting all the nutrients you need for your hair, we recommend PHYTOPHANÈRE DIETARY SUPPLEMENT, a daily supplement that brings a blend of nutrients necessary for your hair and nail growth.
#5: NOT USING CONDITIONER ON FINE HAIR
People tend not to use conditioner for fear of weighing the hair down. However, you need conditioner in order to regain balance of the hair PH levels after using shampoo, which is often more acidic than soap. Our tip for you is to use any of the PHYTOBAUME EXPRESS CONDITIONERS that target your hair concern. These paraben-free, silicone-free conditioners will assist you in instantly detangling and improving manageability and shine without weighting down your hair.
#6: NEGLECTING COLOR-TREATED HAIR
Majority of us get our hair color treated, but often forget to take proper care of our hair at home. It is important to maintain optimum health of the overall hair while protecting the tone and richness of the color. Try using PHYTOELIXIR SHAMPOO AND MASK to not only replenish essential lipids, but also add intense nutrition to the hair, leaving it feeling soft and shiny.
#7: NOT USING HAIRSTYLING PRODUCTS CORRECTLY
Not all of us are hair gurus so we often apply hairstyling products incorrectly and use a product for all hair types, and expect to get professional results. Do some research or ask your hair stylist what products fit your hair needs, and apply them accordingly.
PHYTOVOLUME ACTIF SPRAY, for example, is an award-winning volumizing spray that lifts hair and creates fullness and bounce. This should be used in the root area, not all over your hair.
#8: USING A ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL APPROACH TO SHAMPOOS
This is something not a lot of people know: You can have different types of shampoos in your shower depending on your needs. If you’re wondering what shampoos you need in your arsenal, here is some advice: PHYTO Paris provides you with true hair care routines for various types of hair that help you maintain your hair and scalp’s health and beauty throughout the year. PHYTONEUTRE and PHYTOJOBA shampoos are the cults and basics. If your hair is slightly wavy or curly we recommend PHYTOLISSE, if damaged, PHYTOKÈRATINE EXTRÊME.
